Norwegian singer tours Canada

Beady Belle

Since I'm a member of the Daughters of Norway, I'm somewhat partial to most things Scandinavian.

I don't know how/when I first heard Beady Belle, but the trio is coming to Canada before appearing at the Jea Jazzfestival in Seydisfjordur, Iceland at the end of June.

* Friday, June 20: Vancouver. Performance Works. 9 pm
* Saturday, June 21: Victoria. Jellyfish Lounge. Doors open 8:30pm, concert at 10 pm
* Wednesday, June 25: Medicine Hat. Cultural Centre Black Box Theatre.
* Wednesday, June 25: Medicine Hat. Cultural Centre Black Box Theatre.
* Thursday, June 26: Calgary. The Gateway at SAIT Polytechnic.

Her 2001 debut album, Home, is a collaboration between singer Beate Lech and bassist Marius Reksjo. It's a blend of jazz, pop, techno, drums n' bass and ambient music.
